If pneumonia is present, a rapid rate of respiration may be noted; tachypnea is defined as a respiratory rate over 50 respirations per minute in infants younger than one year.
Some conditions may increase the risk of transient tachypnea.
Babies may require little more than close monitoring in order to recover from transient tachypnea, but other medical interventions may be necessary.
The prognosis is typically excellent for newborns with transient tachypnea in most cases.
This results in rapid respiration (tachypnea or faster and faster breathing) in an effort to bring in more oxygen and blow off more carbon dioxide.
Older children will have tachypnea if the respiratory rate is greater than 40 per minute.
Rapid breathing (tachypnea) and a rapid heart rate (tachycardia) are common during the first few hours after rescue.
